How Four-Year Colleges and Universities Organize Themselves to Promote Student Persistence
Wednesday, June 1, 2011
A new report, How Four-Year Colleges and Universities Organize Themselves to Promote Student Persistence: The Emerging National Picture, is the result of a collaboration between the College Board Advocacy & Policy Center, the Project on Academic Success at Indiana University and the Center for Enrollment Research, Policy and Practice at the University of Southern California.
How Four-Year Colleges and Universities Organize Themselves to Promote Student Persistence provides a comprehensive account of what a wide range of four year institutions are doing to address their persistence and graduation rates and whether or not such practices are actually effective. The comparative data from this study offers campus officials and policymakers with tools to guide efforts to improve student persistence and graduation rates.
The report is the second in a series on student retention, persistence and success. The first report, How Colleges Organize Themselves to Increase Student Persistence: Four-Year Institutions, on student retention practices, outlined the national persistence and graduation picture across a limited number of four-year institutions types and provided initial indicators for empirically grounded, contextually specified comparisons across institutions.
